Lerrill R. Hinman

Lerrill R. Hinman, age 86, of Wall, died Sunday, March 20, 2011, at the Spearfish Regional Hospital.

Lerrill R. Hinman was born May 8, 1924, on a farm, northwest of Wall, S.D., the son of Winifred and Emily (Hughes) Hinman. He grew up in that area and attended Hinman School through the eighth grade.

Lerrill was united in marriage to Gladys Albin in June 1951. He spent all of his life around the Wall area, until 2006, when he moved to Wyoming to be closer to his son.

Lerrill was very proud of attaining his GED, in 1990, at the age of 66. His greatest pleasure was gardening, and he could be content wherever he was, as long as he could have a garden. When he wasn't gardening, he loved to spend time fishing. Lerrill was always ready to help people, no matter what was needed. He will be missed by all that knew him.

Survivors include a son, Rodney Hinman and his wife, Cheryl, of Rawlins, Wyo.; four grandchildren, Joseph, Ben and his wife, Stacey (Peres), and Rebekah Hinman of Rawlins, and Yolanda Hinman of Casper, Wyo.; one great-grandson, Cody Hinman; two sisters, Ruth Renner of Deadwood and Edith Strandell of Antigo, Wisc.; several nieces and nephews; and a host of other relatives and friends.

Lerrill was preceded in death by his wife, Gladys Hinman, in 1988; his parents; two brothers, Clayton and Robert "Bob" Hinman; one sister, Joyce Hinman; and a great-grandson, Dylan.
